I bet Jason's voice makes a great appetizer.

...if no one was home for dinner, his voice would be GREAT dinner companionship too, not only as an appitizer, but main course and dessert, leftovers for the whole week I dare to say...ln

Glad these are trickling in, but sorry to hear Amazon is amping up the anticipation.
I had the same aggro two years ago--I ordered Case Histories read by Himself, and knowing that I was going to be in the UK visiting in-laws, I paid for the inexpensive domestic postage to get them sent to Brighton. Three weeks later, they still hadn't arrived. :ruforeal: Fuck me, I could have WALKED to the warehouse and picked 'em up in that time. They ended up at my sister-in-law's a week after we left, and she had to post them on.
But she did a great job wrapping them--mine arrived in excellent shape! :hit

I'm still working on mine. I found that I enjoyed it when I listed to a chapter after work and before dinner.

Yesterday I found the perfect activity for listening; sewing. I changed the whole set of buttons on two sweaters.

Now, I am trying to ration out the remaining chapters. :-(

I'm working on it too. The usual problem with falling asleep... I will get through it eventually. And I don't mind if it stretches out or if I have to listen to parts again.

I can relate. It's not that it's not interesting, Jason's voice is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo soothing, and relaxing. It's like paradise.

If it makes you feel better, kjshd05, I've been saving the last two chapters of the last CD for the WoP because I can't bear to hear the end of it. I wish he did the others. I guess I will read the rest of the series instead! And I've been hoarding the James Bond one for when I travel at Thanksgiving.

I listened to it in the car on a long trip. No way that voice would put me to sleep while I'm vigilantly driving SoCal roads. So, I arrived safely and heard every word he said. It also made the 4-hour roundtrip seem shorter.
